Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with your washer. I suspect the problem with the washer is a broken motor coupler. The coupler links the motor to the transmission instead of using a belt. When the coupler breaks, the washer will not agitate or spin and often will make an unusual noise. To verify the problem, I recommend starting the washer in a wash cycle. After the washer fills, check to see if the washer is agitating. If it is not, the motor coupler is likely the cause. The part number for the coupler is 285753A and can be ordered from our website Sears Parts Direct .

To replace the coupler unplug the washer first. Then use the images below to access the coupler. Use a screwdriver to pry off the rest of the old coupler. Then tap the new coupler onto the shafts with a deep well socket and a hammer. The parts of the coupler should be flush with the end of the shafts. Then reassemble the washer in the reverse order.

I have also found a video that will give you more confidence in repairing the washer yourself. Please click here to watch the video .

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

How do I replace the timer on my Whirlpool washer model LA8580xww0?

A:

The knob on the timer is threaded on to the timer shaft. With the timer knob pushed in turn the knob counter clockwise. The knob should come off the timer shaft. Now pull the selector off the timer. Unit the selector there are two screws. Remove the screws and the timer will come loose. Unplug the wires and remove the timer. Reinstall the timer in the reverse order.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .
